Re: I Hate The Metropolitan Broadcasting Company
I guess Metromedia did do some decent stuff. But Metropolitan, on the other hand, well I just can't name a single decent thing by them!
So, anyone want to rate the descendants of the DuMont network? They are:
Fox Broadcasting Company (FOX)
MyNetworkTV (Ok, DuMont Network's great grand-nephew or something)
The WB Television Network (I'm probably alone on this, but the stations that FOX didn't use became part of this network, so I consider The WB Television Network to be some sort of distant cousin or something)
United Paramount Network (Ok, a VERY distant cousin for having some of the same affiliates and the Paramount connection, though Paramount tried to kill DuMont)
So there, DuMont's direct descendants, some nephews and a few distant cousins. I may of missed a few of course. Plus, FOX News, FOX Kids, FOX8, and any other company born from News Corp's buying of Metromedia could be considered DuMont descendants, even if they are distant second cousins or such.
